Bridging World History: A Video Course for High School and College Teachers
Annenberg Media
"Bridging World History" is a multimedia course for secondary school and college teachers that looks at global patterns through time--seeing history as an integrated whole. Topics are studied in a general chronological order, but each is examined through a thematic lens, showing how people and societies experience both integration and differences. The course consists of 26 units (half-hour video, interactive Web activities, and print materials) that can be explored at either introductory levels or as more advanced study. The course videos feature interviews with leading world history textbook authors and nationally known historians. The Web site includes an archive of over 1000 primary source documents and artifacts, journal articles from the "Journal of World History" and other publications, and a thematic interactive activity on interrelationships across time and place. [This video course includes: 26 Half-Hour Video Programs; Course Guide; and Web Site. The course was produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting.]
